DESCRIPTION

Illumination system with user interface with position knowledge

In today's lighting systems that include multiple light sources, the selection and control of the light sources usually takes place through fixed devices, such as wall panels that have switches. Wall panel switches are used to control light sources so that they turn the lights on or off, or dim the lights. In the event that a user wishes to change any of the lights, the user must return to the wall panel. Naturally, the user needs to know which switch controls which light source. However, the user often does not know this information since the switches or light sources are not marked. This situation is particularly problematic in the case of multiple light sources and multiple switches, in which the switch that controls the desired light source is by trial and error.

Recent developments of useful remote control devices to adjust light sources have been created. In this way, users can modify the light sources without having to return to the wall panel. The current user interfaces with the capabilities of the remote controls for lighting systems are bulky and complex devices that are not friendly to operate. A known illumination remote control is disclosed in US Patent No. 5,909,087. Other controlled lighting methods and devices are disclosed in United States Patent Application Publication No. 2005/0047134 and United States Patent No. 6,107,938.

WO 2004/100617 A discloses a lighting system comprising a plurality of light sources that act as network elements. Through communication with the network elements, the positioning device is able to calculate its location.

However, the same problem exists in the event that the environment contains multiple light sources, in which the control of the desired light source is often by trial and error. Typically, the user does not even want to know which lamp (s) he is controlling. On the contrary, the user is only interested in changing the light in a particular location, or in a particular direction, and the lighting system must determine which lamps need to be changed. Consequently, there is a need for a simple user interface for the control of one or more light sources.

US 2005/0094610 A1 discloses an environment control system comprising a remote control device and a plurality of domestic lighting devices. By receiving a unique identification information from the domestic lighting devices and based on a predetermined location definition of the domestic lighting devices, the remote control device is able to determine its location and determine and control the nearest between domestic lighting appliances. In accordance with the invention, a lighting system comprises a user interface device (UID), such as a remote control device for controlling said lighting system, a user interface device that is configured to change its functionality. based on its location in relation to the light sources of the lighting system, and to allow the control of particular light sources. The remote control device determines its location in relation to the lighting systems, and determines at least the closest source of light or module for controlling it. A remote control device controller is configured to change the configuration of the remote control device in response to the change in its location. A transceiver transmits a signal to multiple light sources that measure the intensity and / or the flight time of this signal for use in determining the location of the remote control device. The light sources provide the remote control device with unique identification information for each of them including their locations.

Additional areas of applicability of this system will be apparent from the detailed description provided below in this document. It should be understood that the detailed description and specific examples, although indicating exemplary embodiments of the invention, are intended for purposes of illustration only and are not intended to limit the scope of the invention.

These and other features, aspects and advantages of the apparatus and methods of the present disclosure will be better understood from the following description, appended claims and accompanying drawings in which:

FIG. 1 shows the user interface device according to an embodiment of the present system.

The following description of certain exemplary embodiments is merely exemplary in nature and in no way is intended to limit the invention, its application, or uses. Throughout this description, the term "environment" shall refer to closed or semi-closed environments in which the conditions and elements are subject to the control of a person or persons, including but not limited to, a room, several rooms with proximity between sf, a house, an office building, warehouses, shops or supermarkets and the like.

The term "lighting systems" includes, but is not limited to, one or more light modules, luminaires, light sources, emphasis lighting, general lighting, tracking lighting, direct lighting, ceiling lighting, spot lighting, and the like. .

The "User Interface Device" (UID), or "remote control device" refers to devices that are configured for wireless operation, including, but not limited to, handheld devices, remote controls, personal digital assistants ( PDA), mobile phones and others similar. The wireless communication can be through any medium, such as radiofrequency (RF), infrared, ultrasound, laser and the like.

The functionality of the remote control device or UID is changed based on its proximity to a light module. As shown in FIG. 1, the UID 100 has a transceiver 105 coupled to an antenna 110 for wireless communication with one or more lighting systems 115 that include one or more light sources 120, one of which is shown in greater detail and also includes a transceiver 125 coupled to an antenna 130 for wireless communication with the UID 100. The transceiver of the lamp 125 may be embedded in a ballast, controller 150 or electronic circuits associated with the light source or modules 120. For example, the UID 100 and the systems Illumination 115 communicate wirelessly through a limited range technology such as Zigbee ™ or Bluetooth ™ protocols.

The UID 100 has a memory 135 that stores identification information of the UID as well as information that associates various parameters, presets and modes of operation with different lighting systems 115, a group of light modules 120 within a lighting system 115, or individual light modules 120. For clarity, a light module will be used to refer to a light module, a group of light modules, or one or more lighting systems. The modes of operation and presets associated with a light module 120 include variations possessed by the light module 120 as stored in a memory of the lamp 140 by the manufacturer / developer or user of the light module 120, which can also be modified by the user. Lamp memory 140 may also include various other data, such as unique identification information of the light module. Naturally, any necessary data can be stored in memories 135, 140 of the UID 100 and of the light module 120, such as operating instructions of a UID controller 145 and a lamp controller 150.

Examples of different modes of operation and presets include, but are not limited to, modes related to user controllable light parameters or attributes, such as light intensity, color, hue and saturation; including application control beam direction, beam width, and point size; as well as a sfgueme mode, in which the different lights are controlled, for example, by turning on / off / dimming / changing color according to presets, for example, when the remote control moves from one location to another so that the desired light follows UID 100. Presets may include default attributes associated with different settings, such as for romance, watching television, reading and the like, as disclosed in US 2003/0107888.

The UID 100 transmits a signal either periodically, continuously, after the activation of the user, or after entering an area or range of a signal transmitted by the transceiver of the lamp 125. After the detection of the UID signal when the UID 100 is within the scope of the lighting systems 115, the light modules 120 transmit lamp signals that include their unique identifier as well as their locations that may be pre-stored in the lamp memory 140. Naturally, the light modules 120 can transmit said lamp signals periodically, continuously, or with user activation.

The UID 100 includes a sensor 155 that, alone or in combination with the controller or processor of the UID 145, determines the location of the UID 100 from the lamp signals received by the transceiver of the UID 105. The lamp signals include the IDs of the lamp, locations, and intensity of the received signal or the flight time (from which distance information can be easily obtained) from the UID signal to the various light modules 120, where an algorithm can be used that uses triangulation to determine the location of the UID as well as the location of the nearest lamp modules 120. Naturally, said algorithm can be included in one, some or all of the lamp modules 120, or in a separate controller / processor 170 that determines the location of the UID and sends it to the UID 100.

Using the location of the determined UID and the location of the light modules 120, the controller of the UID 145 determines the nearest light source in relation to the determined location of the UID and controls its nearest light source, such as turning on / off its closest source of light and / or controlling various parameters or attributes of light as described including light intensity, color, hue, saturation, beam direction, beam width. It should be noted that the communication to control the light sources may be the same or different than the communication to locate the UID.

Additionally, the UID 100 reconfigures itself to effect proper control of the nearest light source to change any light parameters in addition to intensity, color, hue and saturation, such as beam direction, beam width , which can be through a control of an engine and / or filter device

of the light module for an orientation and height operation, for example. Alternatively or additionally, the UID 100 can be reconfigured itself by retrieving presets stored in its memory 135 associated with the nearest particular light source or sources or stored in the lamp memory 140 (of this closest light source) and transmitted to the UID 100. Thus, the UID 100 uses detailed knowledge of the location to change its own functionality depending on its specific location in relation to the light modules, and controls the related light modules, such as the module. of light closest to the set of light modules.

As described, the UID controller 145, the lamp controller 150, or a separate controller 170 which can be an independent controller, or part of another device, such as a personal computer for example, includes algorithms for calculating the location of the UID or its distance in relation to the light modules 120 by triangulation of relevant data, such as the module identification data received (i.e. the module IDs), signal intensities or signal flight time from the UID 100 to multiple modules 120, or signals from multiple modules 120 to UID 100, for example. The location can be determined in two dimensions, or for greater precision, in three dimensions. The algorithm can determine locations by comparing the ID and location information received from the light sources, such as based on the measurement of the signal intensity and / or the flight time of the signals transmitted by each light module 120 and received by the transceiver of the UID 105. Additionally, instead of or in addition to the triangulation, the beam direction can be used, such as when the transceiver of the UID 105 receives the signal from a light module 120 and determines its signal intensity or flight time.

The location of the UID transceiver 105, or in addition thereto, a radio frequency identification (RFID) tag 165 may be included in the UID 100, in which the RFID tag can be passive or active. Additional information regarding the use of RFID technology within a particular area is disclosed in the published technical report entitled, LANDMARC: Indoor Location Sensing Using Active RFID, by Lionel M. NI, et al. Naturally, instead of an RFID tag, an ultrasound tag and / or an infrared tag can be used.

The light sources can be any kind of light source that can provide lights of various attributes, such as various intensity levels, different colors, and the like, such as incandescent, fluorescent, halogen, or high intensity discharge light (HID ), which can have a ballast to control the various attributes of light. Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are particularly well-suited light sources since they can be easily configured to provide light with changing colors, and typically have electronic circuits for controlling the various attributes of light.

Thus, the UID 100 uses detailed location knowledge information to change its own functionality depending on its specific location in relation to the light modules, and takes control of the related light modules, such as the light module or set of nearest light modules. The UID 100 operates on the nearest lamp module and related lamp modules for a certain functionality, which may be different for the different lamp modules in the nearest neighborhood of the UID 100, especially in view of the particular location of the lamp. UID 100 and of the locations and types / ID of the lamp modules themselves, such as to provide emphasis lighting, general lighting, screen lighting, wall bath with the desired colors and intensity, and the like. The UID 100 can also be configured to control the directivity of the lamps towards the area identified by the location of the UID 100, including the tracking of the UID 100 when it moves, with reference to a “sfgueme” feature, where the light from the modules of light follows the UID 100 by changing the address and / or turning on / off different light modules.

Additionally a feedback can be included. For example, the UID can provide an indication of which light module (s) are detected as being closest and / or are to be or are being controlled. The UID 100 can also provide feedback information to the user such as its mode of operation, its configuration, functionality and current presets. The feedback information may be in the form of a screen, voice, or other audio / visual presentations.

For example, the UID 100 may have a screen 160 that is configured to display a map of the local area upon detection of the location of the UID 100 in its local area, where the map also includes indications of the location of the UID 100 and of light modules 120 located within the local area displayed on the map. The screen can be tactile so that a user can navigate through the map or display sections of a menu to select the desired lamp module (s) for the control, as well as to select the particular attributes or presets of light to effect a desired lighting condition. The user can also control the UID 100 in sf through the touch screen for example or any other interface means, such as through buttons. Said UID control includes application controls, modification of presets, introduction and storage of new presets, and manually changing configuration of UID 100 and / or light modules, and the selection of various presets and modes such as sfgueme mode and others Similar.

The determination of the location of the UID 100 and of the nearest light source or sources 120, as well as the reconfiguration of the UID according to its location and control of the nearest light attribute of the source or light sources 120 are suitable for be carried out by a computer software program that runs in the

system controller 170 or controller of UID 145, for example. Such software can naturally be realized in a computer-readable medium, such as an integrated chip, a peripheral device or memory of the system controller 170 or the memory 135 of the UID 100, which may include a dedicated processor for the realization in accordance with the present disclosure, or it may be a general purpose processor in which only one of the 5 many functions is actuated for performance in accordance with the present disclosure. The processor can operate using a part of the program, multiple program segments, or it can be a hardware device that uses a dedicated or multi-purpose integrated circuit. Each of the previous systems used for the identification of the UID as well as for the presence and identity of the various light modules can be used in conjunction with additional systems.

10

The various controllers can be any type of controller or processor, such as those described in U.S. 2003/0057887, which are capable of providing control signals in response to input signals from UID 100, executing instructions stored in memory 135, for example, which can be any type of memory, RAM, ROM, removable memory, CD -ROM, and the like, also as described in US document 15 2003/0057887. The various elements of the circuit can be integrated together in any combinations or they can be separate units interconnected with each other.
